Glenna and I went and spent a weekend with Kelly near her college. Her school was putting on a play ("The Secret Garden") and while Himself wasn't able to go, we took full advantage of his hotel rewards program and spent two nights together. Bliss!
Unbeknownst to us, the spring training of the Yankees and the Patriots is the same week that we went. Every hotel room is booked a year in advance. In fact, during that specific week, no one actually takes reward points - except the Marriott. So, we had this $250 per night room for freezies.
Speaking of freezies, we went to dinner at the Chili's one night. It was soooo cold! I drank a cup of hot water just to get warm, and the girls huddled together in the booth. I love taking out my iPod and snapping one photo after the other.
I just love how Glenna's expression is virtually unchanged in each of them.
Kelly is back home this weekend. Tonight is the Senior Recital of his Brown-Eyed Girl! We have all been looking forward to this, and I know she has worked so very, very hard!

I have continued drinking the green smoothies that I blogged about here. After a month of these, I have noticed that my energy level is pretty much . . . . steady.
I don't have spikes in energy or severe lows where I would come home and crash for two hours. If I do take a nap, it's for maybe 20 minutes, or sometimes I just resting and reading and then I'm ready to be up and going again.
If Glenna and I are out and about, I find that I'm not dragging at all. It's just a steady pace and a willingness to do the next thing.
I can live with that!
I did have a slight migraine on Sunday, but it was nowhere near as severe as they can be. It was more discomfort and gone by morning.
My head hurts in the same area all the time, though. I contribute this to my pillows and the way I sleep. When I spent the weekend with Kelly in Clearwater, the hotel had these feather pillows that were so fabulous. I didn't have the headache I usually do, and I was able to sleep comfortably with just one pillow. Hmmm. . . .
This last weekend I was working Space shifts and unable to drink as many smoothies. I also ate a burger at Pecos Bill's. I felt pretty yucky the next day and starting slamming the plants down again.
